Hardtop
Prior to 1970, Jerry Titus' team, TG Racing, built Firebirds for customers in addition to their own two-car team. In 1970, the team decided to focus all of their resources on a one-car effort with Titus as the driver. The team built three chassis that were used during the season.

Over the course of the season the team was constantly testing and updating the cars. Titus would choose the fastest for each race. This is one of the team cars with lineage verified by the Titus family. This car and the BFG 'Tire Bird' are the only cars that still exist.

Titus' partner Terry Godsall secured BF Goodrich sponsorship for the team at the end of the 1970 season. This car was raced once in Trans-Am in 1971. It was primarily used as a show car and in photo shoots for BF Goodrich advertising. The car was sold in 1972 and used in local races.

In the late 1990s, the car underwent a full concours-level cosmetic and mechanical restoration to 1970 specification performed by Mark Mountanos and his team. The authenticity of the car was again confirmed by BF Goodrich team leader Douglas Innes as the Titus car. The car is highly documented with period photographs, records, and restoration information. The high level of craftsmanship and attention to details of all aspects of the car's restoration is normally only seen on full concours show cars and included paint, interior, chassis, engine, hardware, and assembly.

Today the car is maintained in spectacular condition, fully sorted, and race ready. Since the 1999 restoration, the car has competed in multiple Monterey Historic Races and Wine Country Classic.
